Anchor Text Virtual Series

You’ll leave these interactive workshops knowing how to use an Anchor Text to teach students how to read and think about diverse books as you meet their individual needs by differentiating instruction. Whether you organize instruction into guided reading groups or a reading workshop, the Anchor Text will be your go-to teaching tool for all students. Experience the benefits of preparing an anchor chart to build students’ vocabulary and record their thinking as you interact with them. In this 5-part series, you’ll use these short, Anchor Text mini-lessons to model and think aloud how you respond to a text, how you use context clues to figure out the meaning of unfamiliar words, and the benefits of informal writing about reading to students’ comprehension. During these mini-lessons, you’ll involve students and offer them the practice they need before applying what you’ve modeled to their instructional level books. 

Day One: October 18 | 4:00-6:00 PM
Day Two: October 19 | | 4:00-6:00 PM
